Roland Millward with grandson

Hello, and welcome!

I am Roland Millward, and I live in Trowbridge, the county town of Wiltshire in southwest England.

I retired from full-time employment on September 30th, 2022, and I love spending time with my grandson.

People, places and history have always been my passion, and now I spend more time visiting, researching and writing about them here at Roland’s Travels.

In addition, I have a podcast and YouTube Channel.
